Coastal Flood Advisory until 01:00AM Friday

The National Weather Service in Mount Holly has issued a Coastal Flood Advisory, which is in effect from 7:00 PM Thursday until 1:00 AM Friday.

* LOCATIONS...Coastal areas of Monmouth County and Middlesex County.

* TIMING...High tide on the New Jersey oceanfront occurs between 8:30 and 9:30 PM Thursday. High tide on the back bays and on Raritan Bay occurs later than the high tide on the oceanfront.

* COASTAL FLOOD IMPACTS...Widespread minor flooding is anticipated around the time of Thursday evening's high tide. Up to 1 foot of saltwater inundation above ground level is possible in low-lying areas near shorelines and tidal waterways. Roadway flooding is expected. Some roads may be closed due to high water.

* WAVES...Wave heights on the ocean waters off the coast are forecast to be 5 to 7 feet.



A Coastal Flood Advisory means that minor tidal flooding is expected. Minor tidal flooding often results in some road closures. Usually, the most vulnerable roadways will flood. Do not leave your vehicle at a location that is prone to tidal flooding. Do not drive your vehicle through flood waters. The water may be deeper than you think it is. You will be putting yourself in danger and your vehicle may be damaged, leading to costly repairs. Visit the Advanced Hydrologic Prediction Service at for additional water level and flood impact information for your local tide gauge.
